Hi Steve, thanks for your info.
Actually there's a way to have all the header at the beginning in MP4, what
I'm evaluating is the overhead needed from the decoder to strart playing a
I made a quick test and it seems that using MKV I can save 50% of the header
size, but I son't know why.
Is there maybe some option in Matroska to compress the header even more?
thanks for any help
